April: Canning Challenge – Hummus Dip Recipe

It's a new month, which means it's time for a new challenge. My Blogger Recipe Challenge group and I are working 10 recipes each involving canning, or canned goods, or things you can make with or put into a can (mason jars count). It's a loose interpretation as usual, but hey, we have fun, and YOU get access to a whole slew of awesome recipes. You can check out our website HERE.

For my first recipe I decided to make Hummus Dip. The beans come in a can so OBVIOUSLY it counts. Right? I've been eying a version of this recipe on Lunch Box Bunch. The great thing about this recipe is that I only had to go out and purchase ONE ingredient. I happened to have everything else in the house. (Don't you just love those types of recipes??)

  • 1 Can - Garbonzo Beans
  • 1 Can - Cannellini Beans
  • 1 TBSP - Lemon Juice
  • 1-2 TBSP - Extra Virgin Olive Oil (Plus more for garnish.)
  • 1 Tsp - Salt
  • 1/2 Tsp - Garlic Powder
  • 1/4 Tsp - Black Pepper (Finely ground.)
  • Paprika (or Cayenne) to Taste. (Plus more for garnish)
  • Chives for Garnish


  1. Strain beans and thoroughly wash with warm water.
  2. Place beans, lemon juice, olive oil, salt, garlic powder, pepper, and paprika in food processor and blend until smooth. *If your mixture is thick you can add additional olive oil. If your mixture is STILL too thick, add in as much warm water as needed to reach your preferred consistency.
  3. Taste your hummus mixture to see if you need to add any additional spices.
  4. Garnish with EVOO, Paprika, and Chives.
  5. Serve with your favorite veggies, crackers, chips, etc.
